LETTER: Origins of our existence

THE recent discussion in the NewsMail about evolution versus creation raises some interesting questions.

The supporters of Charles Darwin claim that the God of the Bible is a myth, and that the sun, stars and planets including our Earth, evolved over billions of years.

They also claim that the human race descended from the apes.

They also claim that since the God of the Bible cannot be seen, then there is no scientific proof that he exists. Are they right?

And is it all a figment of someone's fertile imagination?

The sun and planets are the right size and distance from each other.

Only Earth is capable of supporting life.

The other planets are either too close or too far away, have no atmosphere, or a toxic atmosphere. How can that be chance?

If the human race descended from the apes, then there should be no more apes.

Also, ape's blood and human blood should be exactly the same.

Even if the evolutionists are right, where did the basic matter come from to evolve into the universe and life as we know it?

Because we can't see something, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

We can't see the atmosphere, nor can we see electricity, magnetism or gravity, yet no one questions their existence.
